ADAPTIC Non-Adhering Dressing Protects the wound minimizes pain and maceration. ADAPTIC Non-Adhering Dressing is a primary dressing made of knitted cellulose acetate mesh, impregnated with a specially formulated petrolatum emulsion, making it easy to remove, thus minimising pain.
Suitable for use, under medical supervision, with negative pressure wound therapy (NPWT) for the protection of fragile wound structures
How it Works:
- ADAPTIC Non-Adhering Dressing protects the fragile tissue in wounds with a unique structure featuring a small mesh size. This helps to prevent tissue adherence to either the ADAPTIC Dressing or the secondary dressing on top.
- The unique structure knitted cellulose acetate fabric mesh impregnated with a petrolatum emulsion is intended as a primary dressing to be used with a secondary dressing
- Mesh allows for exudate to pass easily through to a secondary absorbent dressing, helping to prevent maceration of the wound surface and minimizing the risk of pooling
- Knitted cellulose acetate fabric allows ADAPTIC Dressing to be cut to wound size without unravelling or shredding
- ADAPTIC Non-Adhering Dressing removes cleanly from the wound, minimizing trauma and pain during dressing changes
- In turn, this reduces the risk of tissue adherence to both ADAPTIC Dressing and the secondary dressing, and minimizes patient pain
